Preparation for Professional Programs of Study

Students interested in spending their junior and senior years in the University of Pittsburgh's professional Schools of Social Work, Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Information Sciences, or Pharmacy normally spend two years in the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences taking necessary prerequisite courses and electives in preparation for professional study. Although freshmen are accepted directly into the Schools of Engineering, Nursing, and the College of Business Administration (CBA), it is possible for students who begin in the Dietrich School to transfer into those schools after one or two years. Detailed information is available in handouts in the Arts and Sciences Advising Center, 201 Thackeray Hall.

Preparation for Graduate Professional Schools

Although the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences does not offer specific majors in prelaw, premedical, predental, or education, it is possible for students in the Dietrich School to complete all the necessary prerequisites for entry into these graduate professional schools while fulfilling their Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences degree requirements. Details are available in handouts in the Advising Center, 201 Thackeray Hall.
